Jos. A. Bank made a last minute announcement today regarding its holiday hours: Black Friday sales will start at 8pm on Thursday, Thanksgiving, and run until 1am. Friday hours will be abbreviated—6am until 1pm. The retailer says its 571 stores are all participating, with hours varying slightly from store to store.
CEO Neal Black added that Jos. A. Bank was announcing its “doorbuster” deals now “to assist our customers in planning their shopping on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.”
Jos. A. Bank joins Bon-Ton, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Walmart in scheduling shopping hours on Thanksgiving. Walmart will open the earliest, at 6pm; the other retailers open at 8pm.
Other major menswear chains, like Men’s Wearhouse, do not appear to have succumbed to Thanksgiving madness. DestinationXL, the big & tall retailer has specifically said it will be closed on Thanksgiving.
